    One day my wife brought home a 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix she had bought. She pulled it into the garage and parked it next to my all-original 1961 Norton Manxman and I was stunned to see that it's paint matched exactly. I have looked up the paint code for this car and it is wa9614. I put my face right on this car and the fuel tank for the Manxman and the match was amazing.

    Check out this auto painted in the color here: http://www.pacificp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=86134

    You can compare it to the color on the photos of the original Norton Manxman on the Facebook page.

    there are many car paints that will match the Norton Manxman blue but old paint ether fads or darkens , I found that Lotus pacific blue metallic cellulose it's a good match but you need a Gold metallic base coat No lacquer ,that's how these bikes were painted and then passed through an conveyor oven in there paintshop, ok
